A fight broke out amongst many students at the University of Ghana, Legon. Students from Mensah-Sarbah hall and Commonwealth hall were the ones to get into a fight with one other.
During the time that the university security staff stood by helplessly, a vehicle was also set on fire.
In the end, police officers came on the scene in front of Mensah-Sarbah hall to de-escalate the situation and avoid a further escalation of the fighting that had been going on.
According to the account of a witness who was there during the incident, the statue of John Mensah Sarbah was also obliterated.
“The students are making fun of them with hoots and hollers.”
